Amitabh Bachchan, the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, says, "I'm afraid of being replaced..."

We saw the first crorepati (millionaire) of the season, Jaskaran Singh from Punjab, in the earlier episodes of Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 15. After failing to correctly respond to the last 7 crore question, he was awarded a monetary prize of Rs 1 crore and sent home. Amitabh Bachchan, the game's presenter, restarted it and invited Chirag Agarwal to sit in the hot seat. The competitor discussed the effects of artificial intelligence (AI) on the workforce, which prompted Big B to make light of his fears of being replaced by a hologram.

In the middle of the game, contestant Chirag Agarwal talked about the impact of Artificial Intelligence as he said, “It is said that AI will be soon taking over labour jobs but now it feels that people in the creative world will be the most affected. I feel really lucky to see you in flesh and blood. However, someday it might happen that you are not there for the shoot and your hologram will be used.”The OG Don actor too had a quirky reply as he talked about getting replaced with a hologram saying, “So let me tell you the truth this is not me but my hologram. I am scared I might be replaced with a hologram, in movies such things keep happening.”

The 80-year-old actor further added, “We are taken to a room and there are around 40 cameras rotated around and designed to make several expressions by looking around and making faces. I really do not know for what but later I learned that they will actually be used in my absence. So even if I have not given the shot, it will seem that is me. So I get scared AI will one day take our jobs. Please help me out if I ever go jobless as we get a job with a lot of difficulty.”

Later on in the programme, we see some amusing moments as the participant tells Mr Bachchan how he eventually ends up being friend-zoned by girls who refer to him as a panda and think him to be simply adorable and cuddly. With Chirag's sister's confirmation, Big B advises him not to hold out hope for a better future. Chirag performs admirably in the game and wins Rs. 1,60,000 in prize money.

The 15th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati will include Archana Yadav as a new competitor in future episodes. She has earned Rs 10,000 and will compete again the next day. Watch the most recent episodes of the programme on Sony TV on weekdays at 9:00 p.m.
